TypeError: unsupported operand type(s) for ** or pow(): 'list' and 'float'
So I have been frustrated with the review section of 9/9. I'm pretty sure my code is correct and the error didn't show up on the previous exercise even though it was the same code. If anyone could tell me if I'm doing something wrong that would be great.
